Tooth pain is a pain that we feel when something is wrong with our teeth or periodontal surrounding. As for the dental reasons, the tooth pain can occur because of the tooth itself, because of the conditions of the gum or the bones beneath the tooth, nerves supplying the area of the tooth, the temporom and ibular joints and the muscles that move the jaw.
A mild tooth pain is the pain that is usually manifested as an increased sensitivity of the tooth to cold or hot substances. Moderate pain is more severe, as you can guess. Possible reasons for the moderate pain can be the inflammation and infection of the dental pulp. The pain will be felt anytime you touch your tooth. Dental abscess forms a pus pocket that has bacteria, dead tissue (of the dental pulp mostly), and white blood cells.

Some pain killers, over-the-counter medications can be used to alleviate the moderate pain and control the situation. Trauma, such as a tooth fracture can also cause the deterioration of enamel and extreme pain.
